Paige Spiranac made the cut at the Ladies Scottish Open at Dundonald Links, and is now tied 58th on the final day.
Spiranac won her first professional tournament last month when she shot a final round of 68 to win a Cactus Tour event.
This was her second Ladies European Tour outing, and she won’t be disappointed by her progress.
Paige posted scores of 76 on day one and 75 on Saturday to make the cut with a seven over par 151.
'I've been working really hard on my game so it was great to make the cut,' she said.
'I still have a lot of work to go, but this is a good start and a step in the right direction.'
She missed the cut in her debut professional tournament last year at the Dubai Ladies Masters, and then said she would take a 'break from social media'.
'Since Dubai, I've been approached to play in other events but I've turned every invitation down,' she confirmed.
'I wasn't ready but this was too good an opportunity to miss. Everybody says "go to Europe and learn".
I really want to get on the Ladies European Tour because this is where I'll improve my all round game.”
After three rounds, Paige is tied 58, having shot a 74 on Saturday. If she stays there she will win E1,575, which will just about pay the airfare.
